is only a threat to us as long as we continue our military occupation in afghanistan. after more than nine years of military occupation in afghanistan, can we really continue to claim to be acting in self-defense? the premise that the presence of our troops on the ground keeps us safer at home has been repudiated by recent terrorist attacks on the united states all done by people other than afghans. outraged at continuing u.s. military occupation of predominantly muslim countries. that's not to justify what they do, but it is to clarify the condition that we have in afghanistan. for how long are we going to continue to dedicate hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of lives before we realize we can't win afghanistan militarily? at the end of the year, the administration and u.s. military leaders were touting peace talks to end the war with high level taliban leaders. these leaders turned out to be fake. a november, 2010 article in "the new york times" detailed joint u.s. an afghan negotiations with a man the u.s. claim was one of the most senior commanders in the taliban. according

months ago. in terms of some of the big cheeses available for us to look at in terms of balancing the step to set, what the committee saw last year was a couple of regular items that we usually consider or use to balance the budget deficit. we projected inflationary growth in the current track of $19.2 million. that is cost of living adjustments to our providers. so, we do project that we will experience that growth. we do have the option and will likely exercise the option not to fund that growth. meaning that providers will have to adapt to providing services with fewer resources as many of them are experiencing the same crop -- cost growth pressure as the city. under the option to the school district we can defer one quarter of our contribution in a given year. we have exercised that option in the last couple of years and it is likely prudent to do so again. there is the long-term issue of the charter language that requires us to pay back at some point unless prope h is renewed. something to consider for the future. another big piece of the deficit projection is the capital bud

chris lawrence with a look at what role the u.s. might play in the no-fly zone. chris, live at the pentagon, what's on deck for the u.s. now that the un has passed this? >> ali, the u.s. air force has a base in italy, the navy has two, and the italians have already okayed the use of their area to launch some of the missions in this know fly zone. there was an aircraft carrier in the mediterranean sea near libya. it left earlier this week and is now out in the arabian sea. without a carrier, planes will have to fly possibly farther, which means they won't be able to spend as much time over libyan aerospace which means you may need more planes to carry out the mission. some of the officials i've spoken with here in the pentagon say don't just think of a no-fly as american fighter pilots flying american jets. there are other ways in which the u.s. can contribute. unmanned drones, for instance. the u.s. also has signal-jamming aircraft that could disrupt colonel gadhafi's ability to communicate with his forces. overall what you'll have to do is have a very clear line of command
